Marriott International continues its rapid growth in Eastern Europe with the opening of the Istanbul Marriott Hotel Sisli, taking the company’s total number of properties to seven in Istanbul and eleven in Turkey overall. From its rooftop heliport and stunning views to impeccably furnished guestrooms and sophisticated event space, this five-star hotel is a first-class addition to Istanbul’s skyline.
The hotel is situated within an impressive 34-story building on the European side of Istanbul and between the business districts of Levent and Taksim. With its cosmopolitan location in Sisli and proximity to popular cultural and historical sites, it is an ideal destination for both business and leisure travelers. Upscale restaurants, shopping malls and high-end boutiques are all within walking distance, while downtown destinations such as Taksim Square and Grand Bazaar are just minutes away.
“We are delighted to open this magnificent hotel in Istanbul and build on our strong portfolio in Turkey,” said Amy McPherson, President and Managing Director for Marriott International in Europe. “Over the past few years we have seen robust growth in Turkey where 6 of our 11 hotel brands in Europe are represented, demonstrating the growing strength of our portfolio of brands.”
“Last year, we began a journey to transform our signature Marriott Hotels brand and introduce innovations across every part of the guest experience in response to the changing needs of the new generation of traveler. Everything from technology and design to meetings is being revitalized and we are very proud that the Istanbul Marriott Hotel Sisli showcases many of these innovations and represents a new standard for the brand.”
